trinetx.svg Study Feasibility using TriNetX TriNetX is an intuitive, elegant, and fast system for querying UC Health’s Epic data. This self-service tool can define approximate patient cohort availability defined by clinical criteria such as diagnoses, demographics, clinical procedures, lab results, and medications. These queries can used for identifying patient cohorts, hypothesis generation, or defining a clinical data extract. If TriNetX does not have the detailed elements required, we will escalate the request to a search within Epic. (See 'Study Feasibility directly from Epic'). More info
